Gone are the days when the only ice cream flavour that vegans could find in the shops was vanilla. Now, there are heaps of dairy-free ice creams on the market and the biggest problem is fitting them all in your freezer. Whether you’re looking for simple yet sweet flavours or more indulgent options, there’s something to cater to everyone’s tastes.

Here’s our round-up of the best vegan ice cream in the UK.

Just one Cornetto… or maybe two

Vegan Cornetto ice creams are here – hurrah! This summer staple means that you can chomp your way through a traditional vanilla ice cream cone topped with chocolate and nuts. They’re made with soy and have a crunchy cone that’s gluten-free too! If you can’t find the Wall’s version, then you’ll find own-brand Free From Cones in various supermarkets.
